It is unfortunate that some people take the weaknesses of others to meet their daily bread.
As the Kenyan reggae queen, Njambi Koikai continues fighting endometriosis, she always shares her photos on treatment progress.
Some people have taken advantage of the photos as they use them to earn a living.
Bringing attention to the public, she shared the sad news through her social media accounts.
She said; “I have been tagged by many people and informed of some people using this picture of mine on Facebook to extort money from people.
Firstly, we’ve reported it on Facebook and the posts haven’t been pulled down.
It’s quite sad that as I share my painful, excruciating journey others see it as an opportunity to con others.
My prayer is that they never end up in a situation like this. I shared this pic to show the world the extent of Endometriosis and it’s adverse effects.
Thoracic Endometriosis affects the lungs, chest, diaphragm and ribs. This is what I’ve been suffering from.
I thank God for @centerforendocare for helping me get back on my feet. I am currently undergoing therapies and treatment.
I hope that my journey will help women to seek help and not be ashamed of a biological function that we have long been shamed for.
Period pain is not normal and women’s pain is valid. Menstruation should be normal and painless but it’s not so for close to 200 million women.
This is my story about this silent killer disease, Thoracic Endometriosis.”
Njambi has been fighting endometriosis for a long period. It dawned to her that she was an endo victim after going through painful menstruation for 18years.
She is currently in the America where she attends surgeries and therapies as she pushes forward to win the battle as an endo warrior.
